Do you have a kitten? I'll show you how to easily make food for him/her.
You may recall from a previous post (Veganizing Your Pets) that I feed my dog, cat, and kitten a vegan diet. Well, here's how I make my kitten Delilah's food.
I use the Chickpea Tofu recipe in the Vegekit instructions. (Vegekit is made by Harbingers of a New Age.)
I double the recipe and use 16oz of tofu rather than 17oz, as 16oz is a common size package for tofu. So, here is the recipe I use:
25 oz organic canned garbanzo beans
16 oz organic firm tofu
2/3 cup Vegeyeast (also made by Harbingers)
2 1/2 T Vegekit
8 tsp organic olive oil
Here's a picture of everything you'll need:
I recommend using organic for as much as possible.
Step 1: Drain and rinse the chickpeas
Why do canned chickpeas smell so bad? I love chickpeas, but they smell disgusting right out of the can.
Step 2: Pour the chickpeas into the food processor
Step 3: Crumble the tofu and add it to the food processor
Watch out for cats! If your cats are like mine, they'll go after the Vegeyeast.
Step 4: Add the Vegyeast, Vegekit, and olive oil
Step 5: Blend until mixed
Note: Do not blend too much. You want the food to be thick, not smooth.
Doesn't that look appetizing? Smell it. It smells awful because of the Vegekit, but Delilah loves it. She can't wait for me to put her food down.
So, there you have it. Vegan kitten food!
